From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Samuel Rabin (1905 Manhattan, New York City - May 7, 1993 Floral Park, Queens, NYC) was an American lawyer and politician.


He graduated from Cornell University, and in 1928 from New York University School of Law. He was admitted to the bar, and commenced practice in Jamaica, Queens. In 1938, he married Florence Mittlemann, and they had two children.

He was a Republican member of the New York State Assembly from 1945 to 1954.

In 1954, he was elected to the New York Supreme Court, and re-elected in 1968. From 1962 on, he sat on the Appellate Division (2nd Dept.), and Presiding Justice from 1971 on.

In January 1974, he was appointed by Governor Malcolm Wilson to the New York Court of Appeals to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Adrian P. Burke. In June 1974, he was designated by the Republican State Committee to run for one of the vacancies on the Court of Appeals but he declined to run, being already 69 years old, just one year short of the constitutional age limit. In 1975, he returned to the Appellate Division, and retired from the bench in 1981. Afterwards he resumed the practice of law.
